Since it's not likely any conservative amish would respond to this themselves :LOL

Probably soap. And vinegar (for hair). And simple natural concoctions like rosemary/chamomile tea, rose or lavender water, buttermilk, oatmeal/cornmeal or sugar scrubs ... folk recipes like those are very, very old. Which is why it's so great to see them here, being revived & enjoyed!

My midwife delivered for the amish for several years and lived in the community. The first time she smelled my lard soap she welled up with tears. It took her back. She claims that is exactly how an amish house smells. So she always gets a batch of lard soap.

That is what the amish use to clean just about everything. You can use bar soap on your hair too.
